Nobody's Angel by Stacy Gail
Narrator: Romy Nordlinger
Length: 3 hrs and 34 mins
Date Read: June 2013
Investigative journalist Kendall Glynn is horrified when a friend and colleague signs off permanently during a live newscast, jabbing a pen into his jugular. Kendall's no expert, but judging by the strange white veil in the anchorman's eyes, she would swear he was a man possessed.
A descendant of the accursed Nephilim, Zeke Reece prowls San Francisco by night, keeping the city free from paranormal phenomena. But even he is no match for whatever malevolent force is behind a recent rash of murder-suicides. And when a beautiful tenacious reporter becomes the next target, Zeke has no choice but to stay close to her, until he can find the evil spirit and cross it over.
The closer Kendall gets to the truth, the more danger she's in. Fortunately, a sexy and mysterious masked stranger keeps swooping in to the rescue. Kendall's life depends on finding who or what is responsible for the killings, before it finds her.

Quick Thoughts for a Quick Book: For a short read, Nobody’s Angel was a fantastic listen. In fact, I think I found a new way to enjoy shorter stories. For some reason, narration added an extra layer to the story and it felt deeper than if I read it. Kendell and Zeke were both well-rounded characters that I was rooting for the whole way through. The mystery was well-planned and thought out. I thought the story could have been longer and deeper (there was just something missing I couldn’t put my finger on) but overall I enjoyed it. Great read for an afternoon on the porch!

This is my first time listening to a book narrated by Romy and she did a pretty good job. I think she made me like Nobody’s Angel more than I normally would have but I didn’t get a chance to get used to her male voices. It sometimes takes me a bit to warm up to male voices done by females and in short books that time just isn’t there. I will give her another whirl though!

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
